Experts,

I am using the following code to send an email and getting the following error and I am displaying two values. Any help is much appreciated.

=============================================================
Msg 116, Level 16, State 1, Procedure Abc_Email, Line 86
Only one expression can be specified in the select list when the subquery is not introduced with EXISTS.
=============================================================
DECLARE @tableHTML  NVARCHAR(MAX) ;

SET @tableHTML =
    N'<H1>My Data</H1>' +
    N'<table border="1">' +
    N'<tr><th>Total Values</th></tr>' +  
      N'<tr><th>Loaded Values</th></tr>' +  
    CAST ( ( SELECT td = @TotalData,
                              td = @TotalLoaded                        
                   
                     ) AS NVARCHAR(MAX) ) +
    N'</table>' ;

EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail @recipients='myemail@abc.com',
    @subject = 'Data Details',
    @body = @tableHTML,
    @body_format = 'HTML' ;

>SELECT td = @TotalData,  td = @TotalLoaded
...shouldn't this be...
'SELECT ' + @TotalData + ', ' + @TotalLoaded

Show us how these two variables are populated.

SELECT @TotalData = COUNT(*) FROM mydb.mytable1
SELECT @TotalLoaded  = COUNT(*) FROM mydb.mytable2

Thank You

ok.

(1)  Please explain what you're intent is here, as I don't see a table name.
SELECT td = @TotalData,

(2)  I get the CAST(.. as NVARCHAR(max), but the SELECT .. COUNT(*) will return an int, so you'll have to CAST both of those as NVARCHAR(max) {or whatever char data type} in order to concatenate them with the rest of the string.

I am trying to send an email with the following details (like an HTML format), would be happy to see another way to do it as well.

Data load details
Total Values : Value of @TotalData
Loaded Values : Value of @TotalLoaded  

If I just have SELECT td = @TotalData, I am getting the email successfully and when I add second variable to the list getting the error I have specified above.

Also, if I give multiple email addresses with ; as the delimiter not working as well.

Thank you, appreciate all your help.
